Lenoir’s thorn

Lenoir’s Thorn is a rare pathology, a growth that is located in the heel bone


Heel spur or Lenoir’s thorn is an outgrowth that lies in the heel bone (not to be confused with plantar fasciitis). It is present in a rarer part of the population and can be diagnosed by x-rays. It is not painful. Rather, it is the inflammation of the fascia that will cause the pain.
